Alberto Contador has just moved back to the No.1 spot in the World rankings following his Tirreno Adriatico win and second place in the Tour of Catalunya. Ok, so Bertie has had a couple of dodgy moments with beef in the past, but whatever else – you can be sure that when he’s racing, he’s racing. Aggressive, brave and sometimes even cavalier Contador is a dream rider for all bike racing armchair enthusiasts (matched only by the wonderful Vincenzo Nibali).
Back in 2009, he somehow ended up on the same team as a certain Mr Lance Armstrong lining up for his comeback Tour de France. Lance used all the pre-race pyscology he could muster to unsettle Contador, whilst Alberto stayed quiet – until they hit the first climb to Verbier.
Then El Pistolero gave his response.
